Each year over 4,000 Migrant Farmworkers become our neighbours in the Niagara Region for about five to eight months of the year. Of these, about half are Spanish speakers from Mexico and parts of Central America. The seasonal workers leave their families and communities to work for the wineries, farms and greenhouses that bring the province of Ontario produce, flowers and wines.
The Migrant Farmworkers Project engages the seasonal farmworkers, farmers, community partners, and volunteers to work together and helps seasonal workers to access needed services to address their holistic needs including physical, mental and spiritual.
